MAC Silver + Blue Pigments + Glitter Objects of Affection

MAC Silver + Blue Pigments + Glitter Objects of Affection ($35.00 for 0.50 oz.) includes four pigments (each containing 0.09 oz.) and one glitter (containing 0.14 oz.). This set has a cool tone running through it and ranges from white to black to blue and teal. The collection releases online October 27th and in-stores on November 6th.

White is described as a “soft pearl white.” It’s a bright, silvery white with a metallic sheen. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer, and applied damp, it was mostly opaque. It had a soft, silky texture that was easy to use. It wore well for eight hours before creasing slightly. This shade is part of the permanent range. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blue Noir is described as a “dirty grayish blue.” It’s a muted, medium-dark bluish teal with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had fairly good color payoff both wet and dry, though it was smoother and more even when applied damp. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dark Soul is described as a “charcoal black smoked with gold.” It’s a muted, medium black with silver sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff applied dry, opaque color applied damp. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear. There was a little bit of fall out from the sparkle. This shade is part of the permanent range. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Grey is described as a “sparkly chunky grey.” It’s a cool-toned, purple-gray chunky glitter. It is not eye or lip safe.

Deep Blue Green is described as a “rich deep bluish green.” It’s a rich, blackened teal with a bluish leaning and frosted finish. It was semi-sheer applied dry and more opaque applied damp. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly. This shade is part of the permanent range. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is described as a “highly concentrated loose colour powder” that will “adhere to the skin.” They can be used to “create a subtle wash of colour or an intense effect.” The formula is supposed to be “easy to blend and long-lasting.” The majority work best when applied with a dampened brush, as it helps the powder bind and adhere to the skin, though some shades are more pigmented than others for dry application.

MAC now offers “Sized to Go” pigments in select shades, which are the same size as the ones in the set, for $10 ($111.11/oz). Normally, a full-sized jar of pigment is $21.00 for 0.15 oz. ($140/oz.). The set contains $40.00 or $50.40 worth of pigments, depending on which calculation you use. Full-sized glitters are $21.00 for 0.15 oz. ($140/oz.), so there is $19.60 worth of glitter here. All in all, the set contains at least $59.60 worth of product, and on the high end, $70.00. The only annoyance is that the smaller jars can be harder to use, depending on the size of your fingers/hands, but you’ll want to be careful. I usually find the best luck in pouring a little into the cap or onto a metal mixing palette.

For my taste, there needs to be more blue in the set – a more outiright blue, anyway. Also more silver. How are they naming these again? πŸ˜›

Yup — looks like MAC started to offer the smaller vials for some of their shades, which is a nice touch, though it’s not the full line. But you know, it’s hard not to be greedy and want ’em all in mini size.

I like all of the colours in this. It will be hard to decide between the three sets. Generally I don’t do blue, but these weren’t blue, really, not blue Blue, if anyone get what I’m mumbeling about πŸ™‚

I don’t know if I’m alone in this or not but I do wish they’d leave the glitter out of these sets and either put in one more pigment or drop the price a few bucks. I think of these as being pigment sets for the eyes and then Mac ruins it by putting in one product that you can’t use on your eyes but which I can’t find a use for anywhere else (hair? nails? CHEEKS??? no thanks!). Other than that, I love having smaller jars of pigments, since in my life, I’ll never finish up a single full-sized pigment (even Naked, which I use a lot!)

I’d rather them to do pigment sets and then one all-glitter set for those who want glitter. I think it’s pretty easy to miss the warning, and I agree that I imagine most see these and think eyeshadow. It’s funny, the first place I think of for glitter (that’s not the eye) is on the lips, but so many of the glitters aren’t lip safe either, LOL!

i will have to skip this one. i have full pigment jars of Emerald dusk ( dupe for Blue noir ) and Dark soul. I have a mini pigment jar of Deep blue green pigment, that i picked up from last years Nocturnals pigment set, and i never use the glitter. The white is nice, but no need for me to buy the set for 1 item.

my thoughts exactly. when i initially saw the swatch, i was like, ‘wait a minute! that looks exactly like Emerald dusk’. i was wondering why they didn.t just name it that. they really do look the same.

Dark Soul was different before. The quality of pigments is not cool with me. This is what forces people to Guerlain . If these are the objects of my desire, I literally have no imagination or creative threshold. πŸ™‚

Haha!!!! It’s more like I own a store with back storage. I’m overwhelmed to the point I don’t touch them often.. Want some? πŸ˜€ Get your lost days back! Like, I haven’t even opened around 100 of them at least. I see people selling by the tsp. or whatever, and I think it should be weight as products settles to make it fair for the buyers paying $50 for a tiny piece of powder. I was smart to get dozens of the special ones but I will not be so anal to sell like that! It’s not fair. Back when I was quite active, people generously gave Cocoa beach samples.. We were nice. Now there’s charts of how much each will cost WITH conditions. Are you kidding me? Be like Elsa and just LET IT GO. πŸ™‚

I have a question… How can you get a normal pigment of a solid color so you can put him on your eye? because I love to buy some pigments at MAC because the are so beautiful <3
these pigments are really cool, love the colors!
XOXO esmee
